Check Availability & Book Online

The colonial-style Baroness Safari Lodge was built in 1822 by Baron von Pletten. Just 12 km from Plettenberg Bay, one of the most popular and beautiful holiday destinations on South Africa's Garden Route coast, Plettenberg Bay Game Reserve is easily accessible for visitors who want a big game viewing experience in an open 4x4 vehicle or on a guided horseback safari, or for those looking for an African safari getaway in a relaxed 4-star lodge.


Each of the 10 rooms opens onto the picturesque gardens with their indigenous plants, cool verandas, courtyards and quaint plunge pool. There are six double suites, three family rooms and one twin room.

Suites are comfortable, with high ceilings and original polished cement and yellowwood floors. The d├ęcor is eclectic and colourful with antiques and chandeliers mixing effortlessly with leather couches, shabby chic sofas, kilim floor rugs and animal skins. Romantic four poster beds are draped with mosquito nets and dressed with cotton linen and chenille or faux-fur throws. There are extra warm blankets for chilly nights.

Rooms have showers and freestanding bathtubs, some with views across the indigenous forests.
